Introducing new foods

Well. We are having a bit of trouble with getting Lilly to LOVE solids.
Guess mommy milk is just too good.

So far we have tried
Butternut squash
Sweet potatoes

I was having her play with toys and when she put them in her mouth I'd swoop a spoonful of food in her mouth. She didn't fuss, she just wouldn't open her mouth.

Yesterday I tried letting her feed herself. I know it was a silly idea, but it worked. She likes to put stuff in her mouth so I just let her.

What are some ways you encouraged your child to take solids?


  1. Usually baby will tell you when they are ready for solids, so maybe she just needs a bit more time? Getting that "open your mouth for the spoon" thing can be tricky for some!

  2. I don't even remember this stage, but I have pictures to prove it happened. haha. she is so sweet...hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Jacoby hates purees but if we give him real food like what we are eating he will take it sooo much better!
